Knoxville's 2017 Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign is collecting new, unwrapped toys to distribute to less fortunate children in the community this holiday season.

The goal is to deliver a message of hope to help them become responsible, productive, patriotic citizens, according to the Toys For Tots website.

Toys for Tots takes place each year. Local campaign coordinators hold events throughout the whole year but collections pick up in October, November, and December.
